BOOMTOWN BREWERY (DTLA) Hosts a Day of Giving! Give Back + Help the Homeless!

If you are reading this, good for you! I am hoping you will share this post with your friends.  It’s time to take a step back from the holiday madness (Hanukkah, Christmas,  Kwanzaa, Ōmisoka, Boxing Day)   It’s insane right now, particularly if you are trying to juggle family, work,  shopping,  keeping up with your usual chores not to mention other things like special family events. YIKES!

Here’s an email that I got from someone and I am excerpting it in bits and pieces because there’s a real POINT I want to make and an event I want to SHARE.

From my friend Alexa:

I’m definitely elbow deep in it at this point. Between the Secret Santa’s, family gifts, stocking stuffers, Hanukkah gifts, and holiday parties… well, I need a beer… and maybe a reality check on all of it.

And Alexa shared the information below with me and I wanted to share it with you because let’s step back and look at the reason for the season regardless of whatever philosophical or religious ideology you have.

It’s better to give than to receive, so in the spirit of the holidays Boomtown Brewery is looking to aid their local homeless population with help from the good folks of Project Paper Bag and The Hippie Kitchen.




Craft Beer and Lunches to Assist the Local Homeless Population

Sunday, December 22 11:00 am-3:00 pm





–Starting at 11:00 am, Project Paper Bag will be bagging lunches for the homeless.

–At noon, Boomtown will open their event space to move the party inside and will be hosting a donation drive where both monetary donations and much-needed items 

The Following NEW items will be accepted:
Prepackaged snacks,
bar soap,
reading glasses,
feminine hygiene products,
sleeping bags,
tarps and
yoga mats.

–They will also be donating a portion of the day’s proceeds, in addition to collecting donations of all shapes and sizes.

–Volunteers are very welcome! It’s a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community and those in need! So, roll up your sleeves to make meals, or even just drive by with a care package.

This event is for all ages and is free to attend!

The brewery will not officially open until noon, but volunteers can get a head start on being helpful at 11:00 am.

WHEN: Sunday, December 22    11:00 AM-3:00 PM 

WHERE: Boomtown Brewery, 700 Jackson St, Los Angeles, CA 90012 

WHY:     Craft beer in the name of a good cause? We can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday during the holidays.

So yea, it’s a day of craft beer and friends and giving back. Just what we need for the holidays.

Thanks to Alexa for being patient for me to get to this. It’s definitely a worthwhile project to help with and you walk away knowing you helped someone else!
